Property description

We welcome you to Plumlea Farm - a vacation home that you'll truly remember long after your stay has ended!

This charming older home on 250 private acres is located only 18 minutes from both Asheville and historic Hendersonville and offers some of the most breathtaking views you'll find in the area. You'll enjoy close proximity (maximum 20 minute drive) to wonderful area activities and sightseeing such as the Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore House, Biltmore Village Shopping, Downtown Asheville, Hendersonville Town Square, Chimney Rock, hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, golf, kayaking, and many superb Asheville restaurants (numerous brochures detailing popular local activities, restaurant menus and maps are in the home for your convenience).

Our location is absolutely ideal during leaf season with gorgeous views from every window of the home! Plumlea also has a sizable covered front porch which offers a peaceful area to enjoy bird watching, spot a wild turkey or deer, read a book from our extensive library or simply take in the breathtaking views and relax in our rocking chairs.

You may also choose to spend your time hiking on the expansive private acreage with great long range views of both Mount Mitchell and Mount Pisgah.

For your reading pleasure, hundreds of books await, including popular fiction and nonfiction titles, books on the Asheville area and an extensive selection of Civil War and WWII history books. In the mood for a good movie or board game? We have over 60 popular adult and children's DVD titles and a number of fun family games.

The comfortable living room easily seats six with a couch, loveseat and 2 recliners. The living area flows into the dining room with formal seating for six. Just down the hall is our cozy den where you'll find a queen sleeper sofa next to the half bathroom. This room is perfect for an extra guest or babysitter to enjoy an area of their own with doors that close from the hallway for added privacy.

Our fully equipped kitchen contains a dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, programmable coffee maker, a full array of cooking utensils and spices and seating for 4. Additionally, one of the unique features of our home includes direct access from the kitchen to the screened-in porch for casual outdoor dining with seating for 4.

Whether you're up for an exciting and on the go vacation filled with many unique activities or simply a quiet and relaxing time away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, you'll find your ideal retreat at Plumlea Farm.

**SPECIAL OFFERS** Planning on dining in one of Asheville's superb restaurants? If you're staying a minimum of 7 nights in our home, we'll provide you with a FREE $25 giftcard to one of Asheville's award winning restaurants to make your stay even more enjoyable!
